Soap & Glory Kick Ass Instant Retouch Powder | Beauty

You may have read my previous Soap & Glory post on the Archery Pencil where I admitted that I've never really used that much Soap & Glory stuff before but was super keen to try out more. The other week, I was running low on my Rimmel Stay Matte powder and I thought instead of repurchasing like I have done for literally years why not try out a new powder. I was having a look around on some blogs and Kick Ass seemed to have a lot of great reviews so I just had to buy it. 

I'm pretty fortunate in the sense I don't have very oily skin, it's pretty average but leans to more dry skin than oily. That being said, I do like to make sure I use a powder just to set everything and to get rid of any shine that does naturally make an appearance. I'm currently using Sleek Makeup's CC Cream and adore it, it really evens everything out but it is quite a dewy finish which is why I needed something like this powder. The thing I liked about this powder is that it is translucent which is pretty handy because I don't need anything to add more colour to my face. 

Kick Ass Instant Retouch powder claims to have Superblur  Spheres and 3D Camouflage and I will say that it does have a blurring effect on my skin around some of the pores. It's an incredibly lightweight formula and does the job really well. I 'd say it is quite long lasting but I would definitely reapply before going out in the evening as I would with any of my make up. I make sure I use this powder across my t-zone down my nose and a little on my cheeks as I have quite bad scarring there so anything to make it a little better. I also dab it a little on my chin, to be honest I use quite a big fluffy brush to apply this powder but if you are looking to put it around your eyes or in very localised areas I would definitely say use a smaller brush. 

I kinda love the detail on the powder, anything that has stars embossed on it is something I can love. I will say because there is quite a gap between the powder and the top of the lid and I found that it is a little delicate, you can see that part of the "n" has fallen off and it was only in my bag. 

Really love this Kick Ass powder, it definitely lives up to it's name. 

Have you tried this product?

  5. The packaging and the print on the powder looks so good! Unfortunately I do have oily skin and its difficult to find a powder that truly mattifies and lasts long. I'll have to put this Soap and Glory one to the test!


  6. Nice post. I like your blog. Thank you so much for sharing.

  7. Soap & Glory makeup is everything! I tried their Kick Ass concealer first, but wasn't a massive fan in all honesty, but their kohl eyeliners and the Thick & Fast Mascara are amazing!
